ALKIMIE ♥♡☽ ♥♡☽ ♥♡☽

Experimenting with all natural skin care and self love remedies has become one of my favorite past times. I have to give my friend Kimmy credit at The October Union for inspiring me beyond words. But if I could describe the feeling it would be like...  I am 13 and playing with magic potions with my girl friends after watching The Craft and Now and Then. I swear thats the nostalgia it gave me. I previously did a post on my visit to her Ventura studio and after I left, I ordered the book The Herbal Alchemist's Handbook after scanning some of her Alchemy books. I am excited to share her *new Herbal Face Steam and Honey-Rose Face Scrub on my blog and I can't wait to try them myself. Make sure to check out The October Union's yummy line of all natural skin care, love potions, organic goodies, and her threads at her onlineshop

♥♡☽☽☽☽ HERBAL STEAM - FACE TEA ☾☾☾☾♡♥
An herbal steam is the best way for a deep pore cleansing.
Each of the herbs used is rich in nutrients that nourish and tone the skin. The aromatic oils of the plants are released by the heat and absorbed by the skin. It's like drinking a beautiful tea... with your face!
Use 1-2 times a month, after cleansing and before moisturizing.
Toss 1-2 tablespoons of Face Tea into a pot of 3 cups just boiled water, cover and allow to steep for 10 minutes. Place pot on heatproof surface, drape a towel over head and pot to capture steam. Uncover pot, inhale deeply and unwind. Lift towel to regulate heat. Steam for up to 10 minutes.
TIP: strain remaining tea and use as a final hair rinse for naturally healthy and lustrous hair.
